The Challenge
The customer manufactures components for the aerospace industry using a Mori Seiki lathe with a bar feeder running with 300 PSI oil coolant. They are machining aerospace connectors made from 6061-T6 aluminum.

Tool used:  Kennametal drill
  • Hole depth = 6.0″
  • Hole diameter = 1.4375″
  • 3000 RPM
  • 1129 SFM
  • 0.012 IPR
  • 36.0 IPM
  • Cycle time = 45 seconds
  • Tool life = 1,250 holes
Unsatisfied with this procedure, the customer needed to increase tool life and complete the entire drilling process in one operation.
The Solution
Allied recommended the Original T-A.

Tool used:  Original T-A drill insert (item 1C23A-0114) and holder (item 23030S-150L)
  • Hole diameter = 1.4375″
  • Hole depth = 6.0″
  • 3000 RPM
  • 1129 SFM
  • 0.022 IPR
  • 66.0 IPM
  • Cycle time = 10.5 seconds
  • Tool life = 10,500 holes
The Advantages
The Original T-A completed the process in one operation and provided significant cost-saving advantages for the customer.
  • Reduced the cycle time
  • Lowered the cost of production
  • Increased tool life from 1,250 to 10,500 holes (740%)
  • Total cost savings = $18,295.86 or 76.3%
